Re: The Official BTB Discussion Thread

If the right writer does it, who is to say it couldn't work? I'm sure if WCW Rules tried it and stuck with it, he could make it work. It's all about making sure you're able to get your characters across exactly right so that people get them. Sure, it takes a good writer, but it's surely not impossible. Especially not since you've called it tacky and unappealing, meaning the right writer certainly hasn't come along and tried it.

Whether or not people are interested to begin with shouldn't really change the thread either. If you're a good enough writer, people will get interested.

You don't make a really valid point there.

FCW.

The majority are unknown to most people anyway. You can research their moveset and alter their character if you wish. Making people up just doesn't appeal to a lot of people.

BkB's right in the sense that the writer can make them stick around, but you'd have to get them interested straight away, and those threads haven't worked before. No offence intended here but if a big name tried it like Dubya for example, it might get interest. Otherwise I think you'd be wasting your time.

Just gonna point out that most other places have awful BTB sections, and therefore, your btb is probably awful too. Now prove my wrong go go go.
